this morning. and joining me now is veteran congressman john campbell, a republican in from california's 48th district. welcome, how are you? >> good morning, i'm fine. >> good. let's start with that fiscal cliff deal. you were one of the no votes. and this is how you described it -- "i personally hate it. the speaker the day after the election said we would give on taxes, and we have, but we wanted spending cuts. this bill has spending increases, are you kidding me?" first off, are you surprised that it passed the house? >> no, i guess i'm not because clearly what was it -- 95% of the democrats in the house voted for it. i wasn't that surprised. it only took a few republicans -- i think about 35% of republicans voted for it. but if 10% had voted for it or 15%, it still would have passed. this is unfortunately what's gotten us into the problem that we have is that when you -- when all you do is spend more money and do a lot more special interest tax breaks and different things like that, everybody wins except the deficit. and the deficit is what loses. that's why we've done this for years now
